MES: Worker killed in Vanadzor chemical plant blast


An explosion killed a worker at a chemical plant in Vanadzor on Monday, according to Armenian rescue authorities.

The Ministry of Emergency Situations reported that a local rescue service group immediately responded to the blast that occurred at Prometey Chimprom’s ammonium production shop earlier this morning.

It said a 22-year-old man employed there was killed in what looked like an accident.

The plant resumed its production late last year after long idle time.
